This is a very high yield episode to help you review for the anesthesia board exam. I cover the board key word section entitled gas laws which includes a focus on volatile anesthetics, their properties, and how they act on, and in, the human body.
Topics covered will include:
Vaporizer Types and safety features
Uptake and elimination
Effects of ventilation and circulation
Second gas effect
Nitrous Oxide in closed spaces
